Check your DVRs - Scheduled Recordings Gone..

There was a power surge on Rogers Friday around 5PM. Internet access was down for about 3 hours.

When I checked my DVR, all of the "all episode and timeslot" scheduled recordings were gone. The "one episode" ones were still there. I programmed them all back in and it seems to be fine.

I don't know which areas were affected, but make sure you check the scheduled recordings in your DVRs.

Luckily, I keep a list (spreadsheet) of my "usual" recordings/channels/times, etc. So putting them back only took about 5 minutes. Weird that only the "all episode and timeslot" recordings were affected.

That's a good idea, but it should be totally unnecessary!! I just happened to go through my scheduled recording list last night and it seemed like tons of stuff was missing, but I can't really recall what.
Oh, I really doubt he's an "apologist"! When faced with an issue like this, you can do two things: just complain about it endlessly, or, do something to work around the issue and get the job done. He's just cleverly chosen the second path!

What I find really amazing about this is that this same unit - with the same problems - is installed in hundreds of thousands of homes across North America. You'd think the groundswell of complaints would beat SA into submission!
